Patriots ban beer-throwing fan, Foxboro police reportedly charge him

The Patriots have identified the fan who threw a beer at Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill after his 75-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter Sunday night and Foxboro police reportedly will charge the 21-year-old man from Marshfield, Mass., with disorderly conduct.

Here’s the statement from the Patriots:

NBC10 reported that the beer-tosser will be charged with disorderly conduct and throwing an object at a sporting event:

Hill's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said they are talking to the NFL and the NFL Players Association about taking action against the fan, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported:

Hill’s touchdown and the ensuing extra-point tied the score at 40 in a game the Patriots would go on to win 43-40 on Stephen Gostkowski’s last-second field goal, handing the Chiefs their first loss.

NFL Odds: Patriots open at 10-point favorites over Jets in Week 7

NFL Odds: Patriots open at 10-point favorites over Jets in Week 7

The Patriots rolled to a 35-14 victory over the Giants on Thursday Night Football in Week 6 to improve to 6-0 on the 2019 season thanks to another impressive performance by their defense. 

In order to start 7-0, they'll have to grow through a rejuvenated Jets team on Monday Night Football on the road. It's a game they should win, and it appears the oddsmakers agree. 

New England is 4-2 against the spread in 2019 and manhandled the Jets in Week 2. However, New York didn't have Sam Darnold at quarterback and now they're coming off a win over the Cowboys that saved them from an 0-5 start under new coach Adam Gase. 

Couple that with the fact that the Patriots offense has been abysmal as of late and the Jets are sporting a top-10 defense, and this New England team could be in store for a fight next week. 

We have a long way to go before game day arrives, and the Patriots are also dealing with a 10-day break in between games. They have plenty of time to prepare for Jamal Adams and company.

Patriots rookie Chase Winovich apologizes to mom after being fined for TD celebration

Patriots rookie Chase Winovich apologizes to mom after being fined for TD celebration

Chase Winovich's first NFL touchdown on Thursday night didn't come without a price.

The Patriots' rookie defensive end celebrated the occasion by launching the ball into the stands, which led to him being fined roughly $7,000 by the NFL. It was Winovich's first TD since high school, so the moment certainly was worth every penny, but the former Michigan star does have one regret.

Winovich took to Instagram on Sunday to apologize to his mother for the costly celebration.

"Sorry mom for launching that new car I promised you into the stratosphere during my celebration! Love you! 😌💓," he wrote.

Take a look below:

The new car for Ms. Winovich may have to wait, but it likely won't have to wait too long. The Patriots' third-round pick looks well on his way to being a standout player in the league for years to come.
